This is a chance to discover the area in and around Nice with your expert guide. Experience the historic atmosphere of Nice’s Old Town, including the colourful open-air market in Cours Saleya, selling flowers, fresh produce, and, on a Monday, antiques. Continue on to the Matisse Museum, which features a collection of works donated to the city by the artist and his heirs. Then head for the hills above the Baie des Anges to visit the medieval village of St-Paul-de-Vence, a mecca for artists. Here you may like to have lunch (not included) at the exclusive Colombe d’Or, a hotel boasting a priceless collection of paintings. In the afternoon, drop back down to sea level and the peninsula of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat to walk around the beautiful Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, set in stunning private gardens. Béatrice de Rothschild commissioned the villa and filled it with a breath-taking collection of porcelain, artworks, and furniture. Before her death in 1934, she bequeathed the villa and its contents to the Academie des Beaux-Arts.
